Revere Bank Sponsors Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES) Celebration
Laurel, Md. (June, 16, 2015) – Revere Bank, a Maryland community bank, announced its sponsorship of the Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES) Celebration today. The event begins at 6 p.m. on June 16 at the Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda, Md.
ACES is a free program for students who are underrepresented in higher education, including low-income, African American, Hispanic and first generation students. Students apply to the program, and once accepted, work with mentors and an academic coach. The goal is to help these students successfully obtain a college degree.
The event will highlight the students’ accomplishments.
“We believe every student deserves the opportunity to pursue a higher education, no matter what their circumstance is,” said Revere Bank President and Vice Chairman, Ken Cook. “We are thrilled to help recognize their hard work and effort through our ACES sponsorship.”
ACES helps students stay on a college-bound track, select the right schools, apply to college and pay for their education. More than 2,000 ACES students are studying at Montgomery County Public Schools, Montgomery College and Universities at Shady Grove.
Revere Bank donated $1,500 to the celebration, during which community and business leaders will recognize the dedication, perseverance and success of ACES students. United States Treasurer Rosie Rios is also speaking at the event.
“We are proud of these students and hope this event will inspire them to continue furthering their education,” Cook said. “We look forward to watching them succeed in school and in our community.”
The event is free for 2014 and 2015 high school graduating classes. Danni Starr, co-host of the Kane Show on 99.5 FM, will emcee. The evening will feature live entertainment, including dancing and choir performances from Montgomery County Public School students.
